tv   After the Bell  FOX Business  February 17, 2015 4:00pm-5:01pm EST

4:00 pm
liz: look at this. [closing bell ringing], bells ringing on wall street. i'm david asman. bells ringing on wall street. all of the indices. kind of, went through the zero line, quite a bit today, didn't they, liz? liz: jumping back and forth. russell 2000, any feign is a record. you shouldn't have cashed out in january. david: oh, shucks. now you tell me!. liz: we went through 2100 for first time ever. can't stay there. as the numbers settle. let's get right to it. "after the bell" starts right now liz: let's get right to today's market action. oliver porshe in the house.
4:01 pm
he gives you ideas how to weave and move through that. jordin kimmel. he believes the markets climb a wall of worry, but at the top there are good names to pick. larry shover in the pits of the cme. larry, we have, greece was this, charles plosser, philadelphia fed telling our own peter barnes we should have hiked rates yesterday? >> can you believe that? what a divergence with we're hearing in the media, both credible and otherwise and what the markets are suggesting. i would say the markets still suggest more towards september than june. seems like every day we're getting these headlines. we're starting to get a necessary that sized to when this happens. this will happen this year. whether june or september makes little difference at this point. i do believe the asset classes behind me are fully prepared for a good rate hike because economic data suggests that we should do so. david: all right. oliver portia. i can't avoid talking about
4:02 pm
greece. frankly i wish i could because i think they're getting away with murder. did they get away with more empty promises? how will threat get away to pay off 10% bonds? they will not do that. >> they will not. david: why did they get away with it again? >> there is no choice. david: sure there is. they leave the euro and default. >> if they gets hurt if they leave the euro? germany will be the biggest damage, because it will absolutely crush them from an export perspective. it is going to destroy the euro which really, really helped them. that is really the concern here. you're playing kind after game of chicken from both sides. it is political chicken, not monetary chicken. that is the important thing to understand. if you're a u.s. investor you want to tune all that stuff out and stick with quality. that is where you're going to make your money. liz: we'll get his quality names first. but jordan, i mean i think that maybe if greece were to be jettisoned from the eurozone
4:03 pm
there would be short-term stake to the heart but in the end the worst issue would be russians and chinese come in and they try to swoop greece in under their wings. that could be a real problem. >> well, liz, you're bringing up exactly what everyone is always worried about, something else, something else and then something else. but this remains one of the most unloved, least participated bull market i can ever remember. so yeah, there is always something to worry about. if you keep your eyes on companies with accelerating revenues and cash flow, you watch the internals of the market which are the advance-decline line, new high list, this is telling you it is a very, very healthy market. people are afraid to. afraid of ghosts and bogeymen. that is why there are so much cash on the sidelines. little participation from the individual investor. david: larry, one group wasn't afraid today, people buying oil. oil doing very well today, despite concerns about what is
4:04 pm
happening over in europe. why the bullishness in oil? >> you know, it is amazing. seemed like a late-day rally. everybody thought, here we go again, oil will continue to drift lower down where it supposed to be. people are searching for answers. the weaker dollar was not that weak but in comparison it was. options expirations increased volatility. we see that in the equity markets as well. seems like everybody just, civic disruption we're seeing in the ukraine, also the problems in greece. seems like right now that the inventory constraints are being sung a little louder by people saying that. inventory will go away sooner than we think. supply is big, it will drain faster than we think, we deserve higher oil price. liz: i don't think so. >> i don't think so either. >> exactly. there is such a huge amount. >> just telling what you i'm hearing. liz: listen what you hear on the floor is definitely chat they're
4:05 pm
matters. what we hear from jordan, oliver, tune it out and go for really quality names. let me get to your names, oliver. what do you like that would hold up against that wall of worry jordan talked about? >> i'm looking at ibm as an example. big blue, they had an earnings miss in the fourth quarter. but same thing happened in 2013. liz: what is that dividend on ibm right now? >> it is very small. under 2%. so there is room for them to raise the dividend which is always positive for a stock, or at least most of the time it is positive. you look what their earnings track record is, fourth quarter miss is usually followed by strong first and second quarter with good rally. in the mid 70s, high 70s. the stock is a steal. strong balance sheet and strong dividend. as jordan talked about he have about, they're growing top line and bottom line and improving margins because of all the stuff they do in the cloud with new technology. this is wonderful stock. intel, another great technology stock. large cap tech stock. place to be when looking for
4:06 pm
growth and increasing dividends. sanofi is kind after fallen angel that is hurt part of everything going on with europe. but there is another name with great dividend, great potential next 12 to 18 months. you have to be patient and understand there will be some volatility there. david: jordan, you have growth stocks. you have home depot. home depot supply holdings much loews. i will play the bad cap for a -- cop for a moment here. we've had not great, not bad earnings reports. we had retail sales numbers not so great. we had an empire state manufacturing index number out today, definitely below expectations. so are you convinced that we have really turned a corner in growth here? how do you deal with these numbers that are not so great? >> david, very great question. the point is, i doesn't love all stocks. i don't love the stock market in general. i use screens which actually go through individual names and look for growth.
4:07 pm
i'm not saying buy everything, buy the index. in fact, you know, home depot, which is a great name which has been in the portfolio for a while. i want to call your attention to home depot supply. this is spin-off, the stock hasn't caught momentum yet. spin-offs tend to be great investments this is growing faster than home depot. it caters more to the big contractor, not to the homebuilder, but guys building huge water projects, utilities. they're actually all over this country, new, factories being built. that is the real story of the country, not the, few companies that miss. i don't buy all companies. i screen for top line revenue growth, with march begin acceleration. so that is not everybody. that is actually what we call magnet stocks. it is really one out of a 100. liz: larry, let mow three a little water on the substantive conversation, ukraine. that cease-fire is not holding
4:08 pm
in the far east over there because there is reported fighting. putin in the end could trump everything else, could trump greece, could trump the port workers slowing down, cranes and things. i'm wondering how serious this ends up getting. he is not the kind of guy to back down. >> yeah, absolutely. that is the thing i'm worried b we see the headlines every day. the market and participants, just continue to get callous to everything we hear. whether it be ukraine or whether what is going on in greece. the fact there is real turmoil going on in both countries with meaningful implications to markets around the world. we need to remain vigilant. we need to be diversified in portfolios and embracing volatility and rebalancing with the utmost intelligence with the information in front of us but you're right, what is going on in the ukraine matters a lot, and to a lot of countries and to all asset classes involved. david: gang, thank you very much. larry shover, oliver purskhe and
4:09 pm
jordan. thank you very much. a snowstorm prompting the federal government to shut down today. must have been more than an inch. liz: keeping track of all the cold winter weather, fox news's molly line. what are you counting? , 90 inches. janice dean at weather center. janice, what should people prepare for at the rest of the week? we can see real snow falling on molly right now. >> poor molly. they will get to the second snowiest snowfall of all time in boston probably next 12 to 24 hours which is incredible. look at southern snow in kentucky. heard you talking about this. 14 inches. d.c., five inches for you. we know it shut the city down, right? 5.inches. west virginia over a foot -- 5.3 inches. this is the system moving offshore. look at this. let's go up to boston of the we still have the tail end of the storm bringing snow to the boston area. they just don't need to see even
4:10 pm
a little tiny dusting of snow. they are at the third snowyist of seasons. we'll get to the second in next 12 to 24 hours. we need just .6 of an inch. we could get to the top snowyist of all time as we get through the month of february. one thing for certain, cold, calculated and premeditated air into the weekend that will us up for the next storm system that blasts across the south over the weekend. i want to make mention. we're into historic territory with the record lows. look at chicago, minus 6. going to break a record we think. break a record in detroit, louisville and new york. four degrees in new york on friday. as far as south as deep south, even florida. nashville, atlanta, montgomery, charleston, all flirting with records, even south florida could tie a record at 42. that seems relatively warm. they don't have heat down here. look at 33 in orlando.
4:11 pm
mickey freezing his tail off. so you can see, this is dominant pattern across the east with wintery weather for much of the work week. back to you. david: ain't right, just ain't right. my bones can't take it anymore. liz: molly line is taking it day after day. she is in quincy, massachusetts right now. molly. >> yeah. as janice was talking about the final bans of the storm -- bands of the storm, the one bright spot is the snow is pretty fluffy and easy to move and hopefully get not get more than 6:00 inches because we don't need anymore as janice mentioned. 95 inches in boston. we might set more records this winter. a tough winter for mbta, the transit system. buses, trains, have been snarled up. they are under limited service. not expected to get back to normal for about a month. another big concern? roof collapses. that is something authorities are worried about all across the

4:13 pm
back. cfo makes his case for the stock next. david: will this year's deep freeze do what last year's did to the economy? remember what happened then? if it throws a wrench into our economy, perhaps a downturn in the gdp will it also delay that rate hike? our panel debates all that and more coming up.

liz: if you have ever been in a casino where they have the high-roller rooms, you know a lot of these people with the money are smoking. what happens when you shut down the smoking? mgm resorts international reported weaker-than-expected fourth quarter results today. they missed on both the top and bottom line. regardless shares closed up nearly 2%. what is driving the stock? what brought it down to the numbers where it missed the ratings here? joining me in fox business exclusive. we have mgm resorts international chief financial officer and executive vice president. let's talk right off the bat about the fact that this is a bad news-good news story. the bad news is china, macaw. these, macau. revenues dropped precipitously. they banned smoking, right?
4:18 pm
don't a lot of china niece people that go into casinos, don't they want to light up? >> well, liz, that is something that we've been challenged with in the latter part of the year as well as a few other issues that have come up in china. i think really what you're seeing in macao a correction in the marketplace on strong growth that has taken place over last few years. what we have to be mindful of, there is a market where there is over $40 billion of revenues shared among six concession heirs. there is tremendous opportunity in macau. that is not without its challenges and we're happy to be there around think the long term is a lot more upside for macau going forward. liz: maybe the smoking ban, maybe they will absorb that and deal with it and live a bit longer to roll the dice a bit longer. stalk right off the bat about las vegas. that is the shining point of the looks like people are going back to vague bass. give us anecdotal evidence.
4:19 pm
what have you seen with all your properties there? >> you look at last year here in las vegas we reached an all-time record in terms of visitation. the mix of that visitation continues to improve. we're upwards around 41 million visitors here in las vegas right now and growing. with 42,000 rooms, as a company are extremely leveraged to an improving economy here in las vegas. that is starting to show. it is starting to be more consistent in the results we're reporting and the growth in both top line and our cash flows as well. liz: on top of it, you know when you think of vegas, everybody talks about gambling, but there is non-gaming revenue and i'm specifically thinking about the convention opportunities. consumer electronics show, we were there, wow, i mean hundreds of thousands of people coming in. they have money to spend. how does m-fm grab that business? of course you own the bellagio as well. >> well, that's right. we own 10 resorts here in las vegas and what one has to
4:20 pm
remember is, 70% of our revenues today come from non-gaming aspects. so although the history of las vegas has been be around the gaming side of the equation, really over the past couple of decades we've been transforming into a broader based marketplace. when shows like ces come to town, like back in january here with 170,000 visitors, we're one of the only cities that can really handle that type of volume and, our resorts flourish at that opportunity. liz: you have an occupancy rate that has climbed. it is now at 88%. make your pitch right now, dan. talk to people, who, i always stay at the venetian or i stay at the encore? grab that business away and bring it to one of your 10 resorts there right now. you've got your shot. >> i would tell you we offer by far best in service and amenities and most restaurants and shows of any operator here in las vegas given our breadth of opportunities and, with our
4:21 pm
life loyalty program people are able to enjoy a lot of those benefits by staying within the mgm resorts family of properties. from a service, from a quality, from an accommodation standpoint, no one can match what we can offer here in las vegas. liz: he will with the stock is down year-over-year by 16% but up over the past year by about 95%. for those of us in long-term investing, go for it. dan, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you for having me today. liz: thanks. david: he is known for roles in legendary films like "ghostbusters", "blues brothers," many mower. dan akroyd is walking in as we speak, live in color from coast to coast, in studio d for your entertainment and his successful ventures outside of hollywood. that is in a moment. greece may ask for an extension of its loan agreement for the rest of the eurozone. how in the world will greece pay

an all-time high today as investors bet that greece will get an extension on its bailout package. health care and financials were the top performers of the day. oil ending up 1.4%, settling at the highest level since december. oil up 9% over the past three trading sessions. gold tumbling, did you see this, to a six-week low on speculation that chinese demand will fall during the lunar new year holiday. precious metal ending down 1.5%. a hit of $18, to $1201.60 a troy ounce, david. david: my gold. last year's gdp dropped because of last year's winter weather we thought we wouldn't see for a while. this year is proving us all wrong. will we see another drop because of weather again? sabrina schaefer, hilary kramer, ang capital president and chief investment officer and our own
4:39 pm
cheryl casone. ladies, what about the weather? cheryl, will we see another drop in gdp because of this? >> absolutely. we saw proof in the pudding for first quarter of 2014. it will happen again. remember the size of the population in these east coast cities that have been affected. look at boston, new york, d.c. this is where a big chunk of the population, spending population is. they are not spending. they are hunkering down. businesses not getting goods and services. we talked about the earlier today the port of los angeles. david: right. >> the storms and port shutdown will be a problem for gdp. david: hillary, i will throw in a couple of other things. of course we have greece but we have less than stellar retail season. this holiday season was not all that great. plus retail sales were down. plus today we had a bad manufacturing report from empire state. >> that that is a concern, davif course. what will eventually happen we'll see it play out in the gdp. the good news we're still seeing
4:40 pm
inflows into the he can get market. we're seeing our equity markets at all-time highs. david: true. >> that is the proof in the pudding. money is fleeing out of europe. situation in greece, i'm one of the believers that i think greece will be on the drachma and left-wing anti-austerity measure parties but i think we'll be just fine but gdp could take a bit of a hit because of the weather. david: sabrina, quickly what do you think. >> all you have to do is look at the transportation sector of the economy. one of the last storms canceled 7300 flights. it cost the economy $230 million. that wasn't even the cost to the airlines. just a loss to the economy alone. they really do have big impact. david: focus a little more on greece. looks like the greeks can keep their hands in the cookie jar a little longer but where will they get the money to pay off their loans? they have to pay 10% interest on their bonds, hillary. that is just an extraordinary amount of money to pay.
4:41 pm
>> well, what will happen is, the banks, david, they will take another haircut. that is really the story. either banks take the writeoff in europe mainly which is why european banks are doing so poorly and we'll see a six-month extension. this is kicking the can down the road again. david: but, sabrina, play for you or read for you some of what the greek finance minister said today in the "new york times." he said we're also determined not to be treated as a debt colony that should suffer when it must. a debt come my any -- colony, that is victim language. that is the card the greeks are now playing. they're not victims. they're spend think of the. >> he talks about -- spendthrifts. >> false promises greek government promised people through endless handouts they couldn't afford. he is theory that is becoming popular. hard to separate the greek debt
4:42 pm
